When product manufacturers and product designers create products that are unsafe, the general public can be harmed. Unfortunately, in many cases, the defects are known by the product manufacturers, yet they chose to prevent the necessary safety corrections from being implemented. This is often done out of greed and a concern for public perception of their products.

Dangerous products are prevalent in the U.S. It’s been estimated that millions of people are injured as a result of dangerous products each year. Some of those injuries are relatively minor, while others are deadly and can cause serious health problems, lifelong disabilities, or even death. If you are injured by a dangerous consumer product, you may have a product liability claim against the manufacturer, retailer, designer, or another party.

Consumers in Flower Mound who have been harmed by defective products typically try to prove that the product had one of three types of defects – a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or a failure to warn. Design defects involve products that were not correctly designed, and therefore all of the products have the same problem. Manufacturing defects are caused by manufacturing errors, and there may be nothing wrong with the design itself. Some products may be unsafe when used in a particular manner, but the manufacturer may have failed to properly warn consumers of the dangers.
